Contemporary Exterior With Steel Stairs and Concrete Planters
This custom project was built as the clients' "forever home." The uniquely designed entry system leads the visitor to four separate landings as the stairs wind around and turn from concrete to "floating steel" stairs towards the top. The concrete was formed to give it a unique detail, and there are two integrated planters along the way up as well. Inside, the home offers a three-stop elevator, two-sided fireplace, 26' exposed steel I-beam, spa-like master bath and hand fabricated custom perforated steel handrails.
Contemporary Home With Low-Maintenance Landscaping
This home boasts a simple façade with clean lines and a mixture of textures and materials for finishes. A flat roof mixed with regular composite shingles gives the exterior a contemporary look. From the front view, the home looks small, surprising everyone that opens the front door. The stones used for the low-maintenance landscaping were taken from the lot during the foundation process.
FINNE Architects chose windows and oversized sliding glass doors of black anodized aluminum for this contemporary home. “I like to call the main living space ‘a large front porch,’ because the windows and large sliding glass doors create a feeling of being outdoors,” says Nils Finne.
Skylights in the grass let light reach the garage beneath the house. Sleek architecture, with no ornamentation, gives the house a clean, modern look. Panes of glass surrounding the door make for an inviting entry.
